Evaluating, Deploying and Managing Intelligent, Autonomous, Mobile Robots
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are one of the exciting technologies in the robotics and automation sector. AMR deployments for warehouse and industrial operations are surging, and this growth is expected to increase for the foreseeable future. To illustrate, market research firm Interact Analysis research predicts that the number of AMR shipments will increase to over 530,000 in 2024, bringing the total number in operation to more than 1.1 million, a significant increase over the 36,000 AMRs in use at the end of 2019.
While AMRs are experiencing significant acceptance in warehouses and manufacturing facilities, they technology is far from mainstream. In addition, new classes of AMRs solutions and enabling technologies continue to come to market, often at a bewildering pace.
For those companies that are evaluating Autonomous Mobile Robots, as well as firms that have deployed AMRs previously, the selection and implementation of AMR solutions can be difficult and fraught with uncertainty. Mistakes can be costly, but inaction will all but guarantee suboptimal industrial performance (or worse).
Autonomous Mobile Robotics Week was designed specifically to address challenges, and alleviate the burden, of AMR selection, adoption and management. Individual sessions in the program, delivered live online throughout the week or available on demand, are specifically designed to provide informed, authoritative insights and recommendations, delivered by the leading providers of AMR solutions. Also presenting are representatives of companies that have met the AMR adoption challenge and are now reaping the benefits of flexible automation enabled by intelligent, mobile robotics systems.
